Headline: ASIA/BANGLADESH – Formation and interreligious dialogue: the priorities of the diocese of Khulna
Khulna – The ongoing formation of the Catholic faithful and interreligious dialogue are the priorities of the pastoral plan of the diocese of Khulna for 2020. “Our people need human development and promotion, for a social and economic improvement of conditions of life, but is enthusiastic about growing in faith”, says Bishop James Romen Boiragi to Agenzia Fides, who is at the head of the ecclesial community in Khulna. “In general – the Bishop noted – there is a certain shyness among the faithful in testifying their faith or announcing the Gospel”, he said. In this context, the diocese of Khulna has undertaken several ongoing formation programs in the parishes aimed at the baptized “so that people can strengthen their faith to face the challenges of life”, says Mgr. Boiragi.
